Gene Haas is likely to increase his investment in his Formula 1 team following Uralkali’s departure as title sponsor.

Haas acted quickly in response to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine to end the title partnership with Uralkali as well as Nikita Mazepin’s chauffeur contract, with Mazepin and his father Dmitry – who runs Uralkali – ever since they were sanctioned by the EU. Kevin Magnussen was named Mazepin’s replacement last week, with a multi-year deal for an experienced driver demonstrating the team’s financial stability.

The decision to re-sign Magnussen rather than analyze driver compensation options was endorsed by team owner Gene Haas, and RACER understands he is likely to protect the team’s future with the financial support required following the recent upheaval.

It is also understood that this is not the only funding avenue open to the team at present, as it liaises with existing partners and potential new interested parties to fill the significant void left by the end of the Uralkali agreement.

While the Haas Automation founder is ready to increase his investment at a time when the team has a much better chance of being competitive under F1’s budget cap era, this could be a relatively short-term fix as other sources of revenue are secure, but has enabled Haas to act quickly in response to the global situation of recent weeks.

Red Bull team principal Christian Horner has insisted that every Formula 1 team on the grid stands in solidarity with Ukraine in the face of the Russian military invasion of the country. This year’s Russian Grand Prix has already been canceled by the organisation, while their contract with the event promoter was torn up last week to ensure there are no future races in the country in the light of recent events.

Ukraine was invaded by land, air and sea late last month after Russian troops were given the green light to launch a large-scale military operation by President Vladimir Putin.

A number of world leaders have since condemned Putin’s actions accusing him of breaking international law and hitting his country and government with a number of heavy penalties.

The sports world also rallied behind Ukraine after a selection of international organisations, teams and athletes chose to boycott Russia in the days after the invasion began.

However, the FIA ​​has decided not to follow this trend by deciding that Russian and Belarusian drivers and teams will not be banned from participating in events.

Horner, however, has since insisted that all F1 teams are firmly opposed to war in Ukraine.

JUST IN: Verstappen admits he might have ‘more motivation’ to beat Hamilton

The Red Bull chief appeared on BBC Breakfast on Monday to shed light on the common views that were discussed at a meeting that took place to decide the fate of the Russian Grand Prix last month.

“It’s shocking to see what’s happening in the world,” Horner said.

“Sport is almost irrelevant at a time when you see what is happening like this. Certainly Formula 1, all the teams, took a very strong position the last time we were all together about 10 days ago .

“We knew we had to take a strong stance on this and obviously the Russian Grand Prix was cancelled, the contracts come up.

DO NOT MISS

“The team that had a Russian sponsor [Haas] and Russian driver [Nikita Mazepin] decided to remove the driver, so it’s very difficult.

Formula 1 as a community will come together and seek to do something positive [to support Ukraine]we are all together.

“It’s not often that we all agree on something, but it’s something where there is absolutely unification across all teams and all participants.”

Horner’s comments were recently echoed by none other than Lewis Hamilton, who stressed the need for F1 players to take a stand against Russia following recent developments in Ukraine.

“When we see injustice it is important that we stand up against it,” he wrote on Instagram late last month.

“My heart goes out to all brave Ukrainians who face such terrible attacks for simply choosing a better future.

“I stand with Russian citizens who oppose this violence and seek peace, often at the risk of their own freedom.

“Please stay safe everyone. We are praying for you.”

Lewis Hamilton refuses to let controversial end to 2021 season ‘define’ his career

Lewis Hamilton is confident Mercedes can produce a car capable of winning him an unprecedented eighth world title.

After a controversial and heartbreaking loss at the end of the 2021 campaign in Abu Dhabi, Hamilton took a break from social media after admitting he was disappointed with F1.

Now the 36-year-old is back refreshed and eager to take part in the next campaign, where he will aim to make history and overtake legend Michael Schumacher as the most successful driver in the history of the sport.

The Silver Arrows will also be vying for a ninth successive constructors’ championship and the F1 icon is confident his team will fire on all cylinders again despite new regulations coming into force.

“Every year is exciting but this one is completely new,” said the Briton.

“Obviously I’ve seen the designs of our car, but it’s the first time you see the other teams on track.

“You want to get up close and see why others have taken a different path. You have no idea where you are, so that’s really exciting.”

All teams will have to adapt to a different set of regulations this coming season, with a new breed of F1 cars ready to hit the track, with pre-season testing starting in Barcelona today.

The new rules are designed to reduce the level of downforce on the cars with the intention of reducing the effect of dirty air in a bid to have more competitive racing.

The new campaign regulations aim to significantly simplify upper body aerodynamics.

This means less downforce from the tightly regulated front and rear wings, which are strictly prescribed in order to eliminate the overhang aerodynamics that have aggravated F1’s turbulence problems over the past decade.

In order to allow for better racing and eliminate the possibility of dirty air impacting overtaking, the aerodynamic phenomenon known as “ground effect” will help reduce “catastrophic downforce loss”. .

Commenting on the new rules, the seven-time champion said: “I really hope these rules allow for a tighter race. It puts everyone on a closer playing field.”

And when asked if he thought Mercedes might not be able to make a car worthy of him fighting for the world title in 2022, Hamilton was adamant in his response: “Why would I ever felt like this My team doesn’t make mistakes.

“Of course it’s a risk (with the new regulations) but I trust the team. Whether it’s good or bad, we’ll work on it.”

F1 2022 testing started earlier today and Ferrari’s Charles Leclerc is leading the way and was three-tenths quicker than McLaren’s Lando Norris.

Hamilton’s new Mercedes team-mate George Russell was third while defending champion Max Verstappen finished 2.1 seconds behind Leclerc.

The Briton, who is about to enter his 16th season in F1, took to the track for testing this afternoon.

Jost Capito isn’t looking for a team manager at Williams, there won’t be a number one this season, instead he wants Nicholas Latifi and Alex Albon to work together.

Williams have a new line-up this season, with Team Grove signing Albon as George Russell’s replacement after the Briton left to join Mercedes.

This is Albon’s third season in Formula 1, the Thai-British driver having started with AlphaTauri in 2019 before being promoted to Red Bull halfway through the championship.

The team retained him for 2020 but he was unable to deliver the results they wanted, with Red Bull dropping him from a reserve driver role the following season.

Latifi also enters its third year of racing, although its time on the grid has been uninterrupted.

He joined Williams in 2020 and scored his first world championship points last season, seven in total, en route to 17th in the Drivers‘ Championship.

But while Latifi has more experience with Williams, his team boss has ruled out making him the de facto number one.

“I don’t believe you need a leader with the drivers,” Capito said.

“They both have to be leaders because they have their team in the garage and they have to have the ability to work in an even bigger team, and here I’m saying both have those leadership abilities.

“If they work together, we should make progress this year.”

It is not the first time that Latifi and Albon have been teammates, the two having raced together in Formula 2 with the DAMS team in 2018.

That season Albon finished third, losing to 2018 champion George Russell and Lando Norris, while Latifi was P9. Both drivers have won at least one race placing DAMS third in the team standings.

“They were teammates in 2018 in Formula 2, so they work very well together, they respect each other a lot and at the stage where Williams is at the moment, it’s very important that we don’t have fights between the two sides. from the garage,” Capito added.

“Both will work for the team and not fight against each other and that is very important for us this season.”

But while Capito doesn’t want a team manager, Latifi says he’s eager to take on the role.

“Beyond driving, I really need to be in a leadership role,” he told The Race last month. “It’s a new car, a new start, the feedback will be crucial and it will be something new for me in F1 that I haven’t experienced yet.

“I have to embrace that leadership role and have confidence in my decisions, what I communicate to the team and the direction it’s going to go, because I think more than any year I’ve been in F1 and probably more than every year for a long time, it will be such an important aspect.

F1 driver George Russell’s message to Williams after Mercedes move

The 2022 F1 season awaits us with car launches and practice in the weeks to come following an exhilarating season between world champion Max Verstappen and Lewis Hamilton.

The Briton is yet to confirm his status for the upcoming season with Mercedes, as George Russell is set to team up with the seven-time world champion after taking over from Valtteri Bottas, who left the Silver Arrows after five seasons to join Alfa Romeo.

Under the radar, Verstappen’s long-term future is high on Red Bull’s to-do list, with the Belgian-Dutch driver’s salary demands likely to skyrocket after winning his maiden world title.

But there is also uncertainty over the future of race director Michael Masi, whose decisions in Abu Dhabi will be debated for many years to come, and his status in the sport could influence Hamilton’s decision to return. Opinions are split, with Karun Chandhok saying Masi was ‘screwed’: “I think what happened was Latifi crashed and Masi had a choice, at that point you make a safety car or a red flag. He looked at the incident and thought, ‘this should be relatively quick to sort out.’ I think where he got it a bit wrong was that the brakes went caught fire on the car as they tried to run it off the track.

Here’s the latest news as the new season prepares for opening weekend in Bahrain on March 20. Follow all the F1 news updates below:

“I consider this a great success in the process. We are still at the start of the project and going through a transition season of working together on a car for a full year, but if we look back to where we started, this team is already a success.

George Russell’s racing pace has been questioned by influential Red Bull adviser Helmut Marko as the British driver prepares for his first season with Mercedes.

The 23-year-old joined German side Williams ahead of the 2022 season, replacing Valtteri Bottas.

Russell has yet to win a Grand Prix and only has one podium in Formula 1.

Marko, head of Red Bull’s driver development program, challenged Russell to live up to the trust placed in him by Mercedes.

“Let’s see what Mr Russell will do at Mercedes and whether the praise he received in advance is justified,” Marko remarked to the Austrian outlet. Self-review. “I want to see this first.

“There’s no discussion in qualifying, he’s sensational there but if you look at his running speed he wasn’t far ahead. [then Williams team-mate Nicholas] Latifi.

Russell’s likely 2022 team-mate Lewis Hamilton is yet to confirm he will return to F1 next season.

The seven-time world champion was “disillusioned” by the controversial end of the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, when Max Verstappen was able to snatch victory in both the Grand Prix and the Drivers‘ Championship.

Russell previously replaced Hamilton, who tested positive for Covid-19, at the 2020 Sakhir Grand Prix, finishing ninth in the Mercedes.

Formula 1 has been warned not to allow “preferential” communications between teams and the FIA.

A controversial end to the 2021 season, which saw Max Verstappen beat Lewis Hamilton in Abu Dhabi, has raised concerns about the Briton’s future, with legendary Alain Prost even claiming the Mercedes star “may be over”.

A bitter taste has been left in Mercedes with an angry Toto Wolff and criticism has been leveled at race director Michael Masi’s decision to only allow certain overtaken cars to overtake the safety car before the last lap.

And with Red Bull team manager Christian Horner appearing to pressure Masi to pave the way for his Belgian-Dutch superstar Lord Peter Hain, a Labor peer and vice-chairman of the all-party parliamentary group on Formula 1, called for boundaries to be together.

He told the Express: “There has to be integrity all around. There can be no preferential communication with some teams over others. I think that’s the important thing

“There must be no repetition of this. “

There have even been calls for the line of communication between the FIA ​​and the teams to be cut after the drama involving Horner and Wolff in Abu Dhabi.

And Ross Brawn, Formula 1‘s general manager of motorsport, is keen to eliminate the potential for teams to put pressure on the FIA ​​to implement certain rules.

“We will stop this contact next year,” Brawn told Auto Motor und Sport.

“It is unacceptable that the team managers are putting Michael under such pressure during the race. It’s like coaches negotiating with the referee in football.
